Tyrannosaurus – level 3
Tyrannosaurus was a large predator that lived 65 million years ago. It was 12 metres long and had a weight of 6 tons. The teeth of the Tyrannosaurus were about 16 cm long. It was a hunter but also ate dead animals killed by other predators. The first Tyrannosaurus skeletons were found in 1902 on the North American continent. This is the text for the video:
The mother is caught completely by surprise.
The Ankylosaurus has a very little brain inside its reinforced skull.
(reinforced = strong)
So when faced with danger, it reacts automatically and aggressively.
Normally Tyrannosaurus would retreat but she will not abandon her young.
(retreat = go back, abandon = leave)
The blow has cracked the mother’s femur and ruptured her internal organs. She limps away in agony.
(blow = hit, cracked = broke, ruptured = broke, limps = goes slowly)
